I was talking to one of my friends over the weekend about how running keeps us sane. I am not exactly sure why, but “running it out” seems to be a very effective way to decrease stress or to get your mind in the right place. When I am overwhelmed with grad school and work or any of the curve balls that life occasionally throws at me - running centers me. When you run your heart out and you finish, you have a great sense of calm (maybe from being too tired to be anxious). If you are feeling stressed out, hit the pavement. It can make a big difference.

    Kris Fergus is training to run Red White and Blue 26.2 in Findlay, Ohio on October 7th, 2012. Though this is not her first marathon, it is the first race in which she will run after being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Training began on Monday, June 18th, and Kris will be keeping a blog to bring you with her on her journey and she will be raising money for Lakewood Hospital during the process.
